J.K. Rowling Writes A Letter To A 15-Year-Old Girl As Dumbledore After Her Entire Family Is Murdered

Filed under: InspirationHarry PotterSad Sad

J.K. Rowling sent a very thoughtful gift to a girl who has been through a lot in the past month.

This is a very sweet ending to a very very sad story.

15-year-old Cassidy Stay's world was shattered last month when her uncle shot and killed her mother, father, and her younger siblings while he was trying to find his ex-wife.

The youngster was the only one to survive the horrific ordeal after she played dead, and three days after the shooting she spoke at a memorial service for her family. Cassidy's speech caught a lot of attention from Harry Potter fanatics who noticed she quoted Albus Dumbledore, saying:

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersHarry Potter

We'd totally be a part of Dumbledore's Army, any day of the week!

Michael Gambon (or Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore from the Harry Potter franchise) apparated on the set of the TV adaptation of J.K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy this past weekend!

Or maybe he used a Portkey! We'll never know!

In this movie, Michael plays the part of Howard Mollison, Pagford delicatessen's fictional proprietor! Sure, it's a notch or two down from being Headmaster, but oh well!

Filming is taking place in the Cotswold town of Northleach in the good ole United Kingdom!

We cannot wait to see his magical performance!

Well, the acclaimed author has admitted that she enjoys writing books as Robert so much so that she will continue to pen stories for Cormoran Strike a long time.

In fact, J.K. said that she will definitely pen more books for Cormoran than there are in the Harry Potter series!

Say whaaaaaaaaat! She admitted:

J.K. Rowling Just Published A New Harry Potter Story & Everyone Is Freaking Out — But Wait! Do We Spot A Hint At A Possible New Novel Too???

Filed under: Harry PotterEmma WatsonBookzGIFs

jk rowling posted a new harry potter story about harry potter

What do you do if you're J.K. Rowling and have hundreds of thousands of fans who are constantly itching for new material from their favorite wizard?

Well, if you like to be sneaky (as she does) then you decide to post an entire 1,500 word short story about ADULT Harry Potter and watch as the HP fandom acts like they've been hit by 1,000 cheering charms.

J.K. took to the Pottermore website to post Dumbledore's Army Reunites At Quidditch World Cup Final, written in the wonderfully snarky voice of Rita Skeeter, and it's absolutely BRILLIANT.

The piece gives readers a delightful view at the characters now and what they've since been up to since the end of the Deathly Hallows.

She describes adult Harry as:

'About to turn 34, there are a couple threads of silver in the famous Auror's black hair, but he continues to wear the distinctive round glasses that some may say are better suited to a style-deficient twelve-year-old.'

This is just TOO much. We LOVE it.

J.K. must be so ingrained in the Wizarding World, what with her penning the Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movie AND the Quidditch updates, that she just HAD to write this for the fans!

Well, that OR she's got ANOTHER book about Harry coming, which she just MAY have hinted at in her last paragraph.

Well this is certainly an interesting plot twist IN REAL LIFE.

It seems that last year Harry Potter author, and everyone's favorite, J.K. Rowling earned LESS money than 50 Shades of Grey writer EL James.

It seems that 50 Shades earned EL just over
